AP-275 - Use PoE port for power but not data

I'd like to provide data and power to an AP-275 from a single PoE switch port, but the PoE switch ports are only 100Mbps.  On the switch there is a dual-purpose port that is 1Gb copper that can be used as the data connection.  Instead of running AC power to the AP or using an injector, I'm curious to know if I can connect the 100Mbps PoE switch port to the PoE interface on the AP strictly for power, and the 1Gb link would be used for data.  Is that possible?
